Profile of DAF
Doorne's Aanhangwagen Fabriek (DAF) Trucks NV is a Dutch company which specializes in manufacturing truck cabs and axle assemblies. It is a division of PACCAR. The headquaters and main plants are in Elndhoven, a city located in the province of North Brabant. Some of the truck models sold by DAF are built by Leyland Trucks at the plant in England. DAF produced their first truck, the A30, in 1949 and was upgraded over the course of time. They had internationally launched the 2000DO, but it was a failure. However their next attempt, the 2600 was a huge success. In the following years, they were the first to introduce the turbocharger for diesel trucks ad it became very evident with their 3600 series trucks. They acquired a 19% stake in Tatra, which then started using DAF cabs and PACCAR engines. DAF in turn sells Tatra off-road trucks. DAF entered into the Indian market recently and has already managed to bring in some very trustworthy trucks that it sells internationally. It made its entry into India with the CF, LF and XF series.
